Description 

unique and aesthetic, and the moves are really fun! Good luck finding it!

This thing is a thin blade that is standing elevated on end. You start over a dark undercut beneath the boulder and climb up to the thin edged top of the blade via thin crimps... Really cool!

Getting There 

Continue a few yards past the Autumn Boulder and the Jet Boulder, past the massive fallen hollow tree, and look deep into the forest to your left. You will see a small unassuming boulder face (that you may otherwise second guess or walk past). This is the Tuna Boulder.

Once at the Tuna Boulder, walk to the right (parallel to the trail) and you will see the Yates Boulder.

Yet again, walk left and slightly back (away, but still parallel with the trail) and you will see the small (slightly larger than the last) Electricity Boulder.

Behind the Electricity Boulder is the Wonder Boulder.

Walk behind the Wonderboulder and the mountainside will look more jumbled and steeper. Walk back to the right and around a smaller boulder and you will see the large Arrowhead Blade/boulder.

Continue up and around the Arrowhead Boulder. When you get above arrowhead you will see another tall thin blade boulder standing vertical, tucked away behind the Voodoo Boulder which is a long overhanging roof boulder (the roof is barely 4 ft off the ground at the tallest, tapering down to the ground).
